Week 1 - WB 2.1.2023

Design and Technology


These first 3 days back we have immersed ourselves in a D&T Project of making a windmill. The children had to: 


  • Learn the importance of a clear design criteria.
  • Include individual preferences and requirements in a design.
  • Make a stable structure from paper, tape and glue.
  • Learn how to turn 2D nets into 3D structures.
  • Follow instructions to cut and assemble the supporting structure of a windmill.
  • Make functioning turbines and axles which are assembled into a main supporting structure.


We hope you enjoy their end products by looking at the photos.
